Instance and array whole collection

Hello!

Is it possible to instance and array a whole collection in blender?

I am creating info-centred visualization of a flat with 2 rooms. Is it possible to make each flat modular in the sense that it as a whole can be instanced to create multiple floors with identical layout?
Is there any way to put an array on a whole collection?

At the moment, you create a collection ; you are able to create an instance of this collection.
Collection Instance is the last item of Add menu.

Then you can create a mesh that is an array of face or an array of vertices.
Use the mesh as parent of collection instance.
Inside Object Properties of the parent, precise with you want to instance its child (collection instance) via vertices or faces inside Instancing panel.
